's family, if you want to attack the candidate or the elected official, certainly that's your prerogative but generally family has been considered off limits, and that doesn't add anything to legitimate dialogue that really needs to take place on the issues of public safety and gun regulations. >> although some people are also criticizing president obama for surrounding himself with children, when he held his news conference on his gun control plans yesterday. should children be used in that instance? >> i don't think those children were "used." they were there at an event, they wrote letters to the president. he talked about the letters that they wrote. they're very concerned that something as horrific as newtown, connecticut, or things that happened on the streets in philadelphia, chicago, new york, washington, any city in america, could possibly happen to them, and i thought the president gave them a voice in this conversation. often the adults seem to forget that children care about these issues as well. >> but you know, some might argue that the children didn't actually need to be pr
for re-election in 2014. >> how much does 2014 play into the president's calculus? >> i think it plays a little bit but not tremendously. i disagree with you a little bit on this. i think that some of the things that some of us think of as small bore are enormous. a lot of what the president did in these executive orders was about data. right now, we live in an information vacuum. we have no idea how to track what's happening with guns in this country. if -- by executive order requiring no approval whatsoever, he is able to move on that front. that is significant. >> social security administration, which does the health data. >> the cdc. the university of chicago crime lab issue a letter to the biden commission earlier this month. 100 researchers from major universities across this country sign on to that. one thing they point out is that since 1973 to 2012, there were 4 million plus gun-related accidents or shootings or whatever. there are only three research grants from nih to look at why these things are happening. >> that information vacuum has to be stopped. this is enormous. >> i
. for example, jim messina, in charge of the obama re-election campaign puts out a letter, among other things, saying take a look at the president's plan to reduce gun violence and stand with him in support. wayne lapierre executive vice president of the nra issues a fundraising letter saying this. i warned you this day was coming and now it's here. it's not about protecting your children. it's not about stopping crime. it's about banning your guns period. so what are we seeing here? a real political campaign. >> on the one side you have the grassroots organization that the obama for america team use. now, they can't coordinate with the white house, wolf, on this, but they are using all of their apparatus to get out their grass root supporters because what they are trying to do is mobilize voters in much the same way that the nra has done over the years, which is make people who are for some kind of gun regulation, single issue voters and come out and pressure members of congress who may be wavering in gun states and say to them, you know, we want something done. on the o
